Came for the view, dissapointed with the food
Submitted Sunday, May 10, 2009 - 11:31am [Dine in]

Went there last night with a couple of girls, one of who was visiting from out of town. While they were off in the washroom the server came by and gave me a long list of things they were out of... okay, but how can I be expected to relay that info to them? Not a lot of offereings on the menu by way of vegetarians or people not looking for shellfish like my mom-to-be friends. All was good until the food came. Mine was the smallest $18 caesar salad ever. More like a side dish. Come on... lettuce costs pennies. How am I suposed to be satiated from a handful of lettuce? Added the shrimp for $7, it was a handful of frozen mini-shrimp, enough said. A couple of grilled prawns would have been better. It was tasty though. Other girls shared two dishes and an extra plate wasn't brought until they asked. I ordered a beverage and stared at it waiting at the bar for 15 minutes until I finally had to remind the server about it. The kid's menu offered more than the adult menu.

I might try it again

Perhaps it was an off day for the cook. We don`t normally complain, but when an entree costs $30, it better be perfect. Husband's steak was slightly overdone, my potatoes cold, creamed spinach more like soup. Manager did a good job of assessing the situation and compensating us, perhaps even too much. Desserts were outstanding. A cool and classy steakhouse with gorgeous chandeliers everywhere. I like the concept. I`d try it again only because there`s no way everything could be bad like that and this company still be in business. I`m sure (I hope) their prices are justified by good food on most days.

not too exciting
Submitted Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 11:37pm [Dine in]

I AM keeping in mind that I visited this restaurant within days of it opening.

The ambiance is great, very modern and clean feeling... but then again, it is a NEW restaurant. The service was ok, though it sometimes took the server too long to return to the table, even though she didn't have very many tables.

I applaud the owners for trying to do something different with greek food. However, the food fell flat for myself and my friends. Personally, if I'm going to pay a lot of money for a small amount of nicely presented food, I need it to have unique ingredients or FANTASTIC taste. I left unsatisfied because the food was neither exciting nor plentiful. The mousaka was lacking in eggplant and/or zucchini and was a tiny piece accompanied with a small amount of non-dressed greens. The "mini gyro" consisted of 3 mini pitas topped with a total of about 4 ounces of spare rib, a dollop of way-too-garlicky tzatziki and a couple of pieces of tomato for something llike $15. I get what they're trying to do, but a I'd like to see a lot more creativity to justify the prices. I simply felt like I could go somewhere else to a "nice" greek restaurant and get the same food for a much smaller hole in my pocket.

All in all, I felt like a poser waying way too much for "ok" food in a modern atmosphere. These guys are posing as high class, but the food is not, yet?

hate the new menu
Submitted Thursday, June 12, 2008 - 5:44pm [Dine in]

waited for 30 minutes for a table on a monday night at 8:30, we were asked to settle up our drink tab before we moved to the table. I thought that was tacky.

Was looking forward to having my usual or PERHAPS trying something new. my fave has been removed from the menu so i settled on the new rocket salad which was beatifully described. It didn`t taste like it sounded. i paid $15 for some lettuce on top of a warm 4oz chicken that had been flattened, breaded, and fried and tasted like fish. the lettuce was wilted from the heat of the chicken. A few peices of tomatoe and some capers decorated the plate. Beverage service was slow once we were seated at our table, which basically meant we ordered less.

The restaurant looks like an airport from the outside, but the inside and the patio is incredible, save yourself some angst and some money and just go there for drinks.

Not wowed, but I`d go back
Submitted Thursday, June 12, 2008 - 5:34pm [Dine in]

service was excellent, friendly, knowledgable, and prompt. Mushroom appetizer thing was fantastic, would have licked the plate if i was alone in the restaurant. Entrees were ok. Had veal parmesan by special request, it was a little burnt on the bottom but it was tasty nevertheless. Husband had some roasted veal dish, he wasn`t really impressed with that either. pasta sides were really good so next time I`ll probably order a pasta dish insetad.

That's some good cookin'

I frequent this restaurant often. It's rare to find a REAL greek restaurant nowadays. You can really taste the home cooking in everything. I don't know what they do to the lamb souvlaki, but it's the most tender lamb souvlaki I've ever had. Compared to other greek restaurants, the main parts of the dish are in huge quantities, and they serve less starchy sides like rice and potatoes than most places. Personally I think you get more bang for your buck when you get a big portion of meat, rather than a big portion of rice. My husband likes to experiment while I stick with the tried and true. He gets stuff you can't find anywhere else like Halibut souvlaki and these really good vegetarian stuffed tomatoes.

The decor isn`t typical, and it`s slightly modern with a greek feel to it. Service is always friendly and accomodating and you can usually count on seeing the owner when you go. They can get quite busy on weekends so go early or be prepared to wait a bit for the food. trust me though, it`s worth it!
